“Teachers are wanted to conduct the male and female departments of the above Institution, as
both the teachers now engaged in said school will leave at the end of the present session. No teacher
need apply whose moral character is not unexceptional, and who cannot come well-recommended, as
it regards qualifications, to teach a respectable Academy. The next session will
commence on the first Monday in October ensuing.
By order of the Board of Trustees: E. Collins, E. S. Armstrong, J., M Preston”
